Natalie Naudus narrates with a welcoming warmth that suits this sweet and affirming audiobook, which is enhanced with gentle music. A Taiwanese girl worries that her eyes are different from the big, round eyes of her classmates. But then she sees that her eyes mirror her mother's, her Amah's, and Mei Mei's and that they all have eyes that "kiss in the corners and glow like warm tea," with lashes that mirror the swords of warriors just like her ancestors. Her joy at recognizing and celebrating those similarities is palpable in Naudus's narration. When the girl realizes her toddling little sister looks up to her with the same bright eyes, listeners feel her pride and tender hope.
